Mermaid Kisses

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! I'm just stopping by to share this fun mermaid card using Mermaid Kisses (CM160) and matching frame cuts (D1456 E) from Hero Arts. This set has three gorgeous mermaids and lots of sea creatures that are so much fun to color.  I thought the mermaid would look cool with some purple hair so I busted out my Copics and colored away. It looks to me like the mermaid is blowing a kiss so this sentiment is her perfect match. The background of my card is spritzed with a mixture of alcohol and Stampin' Up! reinker in Island Indigo. I love the fun ocean spray look that a spritzer can give you (and mixing with alcohol instead of water means it drys even faster).

One of my favorite things about coloring this mermaid was adding the stippling on her tail. First, I colored her tail with a mixture of greens. Then, I took the colorless blender pen and tapped it over the tail so that it would lift just a little color and mimic the look of scales.
